O&B Fab Sway Bar Clamps (version1a) Why you should clamp it? Your stock sway bar will shift under extreme conditions. Basically, everytime you go off road. When your sway bar shifts, it knocks into your coil overs and can either bend the sway bar link or break it. If you break a sway bar link you are going to rip a CV boot for sure and that's expensive if you don't work on the rig yourself. Put on a set of good clamps, and your sway bar will not move anymore. Piece of mind for sure.

Very nice. Looks like you replaced the factory skid plate? Who makes it and how does it hold up?

That is made by All-Pro... If you can't find good skids for your Hummr I might know someone who sould fabricate them for you... If it can handle the additional weight. :D

Thanks for the lead, but I installed the rubber duck UCP a couple years ago. Virtually the same as the H1's and (so far) quite durable. While this photo does not show it, the UCP covers everything from the front to past the t-case. The weight will be no problem as soon as I get one of those FJ's out of my glove box.
